Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are married

Multiple media outlets reported over the weekend that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger had tied the knot. They were wrong.

As part of their overextended celebratory weekend, the Canadian couple wed Monday in the South of France on Canada Day. Kroeger told People magazine last September, "We met while recording music in March. But we started dating July 1, so I'll let the math speak for itself there. We think it's very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day," he said.

In August, the singer/guitarist presented his 28-year-old girlfriend with a whopping 14-carat ring.

This is Kroeger's first marriage and Lavigne's second. She was previously married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley for three years, then went on to date her on-and-off-again beau Brody Jenner.
